Details of The Sun promotion revealed at The LEGO Show

Posted by ,

Posters revealing the nine sets that will be available with The Sun newspapers in the UK from 19th May are on display at The LEGO Show in Manchester today. I haven't had a chance to put set numbers against them, but as you can see there are:

- 2 Batman sets
- 2 Ningago sets
- 2 Star Wars sets, including a 5 year old Tie Fighter
- 3 City sets

The doors open in 5 minutes. I sill have a few 1x8 bricks left, so if you're here this morning, come and find me!

Update: Si_* has created a Bricklist showing the sets that'll be available.

Good work Huw. Do we know if WHSmith and TRU will be the vendors for the sets as before?

Huw is there any other way of getting the 1x8 Brickset brick. I'd really like one, but I can't get to TLS.

The only ones I want and the Batman ones. Seeing as my nearest WHS is a little way away, and by the time I get to it they will be probably be sold out, I'll have to try eBay to get my hands on these.

The little Bat-boat looks adorable. And I'm a sucker for those little polybag town sets (the go-kart looks adorable, as does the microglider).

Thanks for posting

I wish the Herald sun AU has it.

I guess lego are really trying to get rid of the Tie Fighter mini sets. You can get them free with any lego star wars order at lego shop.com and you can get them with this.

Quite a dull bunch really. The Star Destroyer will be good (we have not seen it in the UK yet I don't think) and the mini Batmobile also looks great.

I winder when you will be able to get your hands on the new Avengers poly bags. I reckon there will be another Sun promotion later on in the year when they will feature in the promotion.

Sad they didn't have HawkEye and Thor, yes... but I guess that giving them out this early would decrease their their Set-sale for the superhero theme.

No friends, no marvel super heroes bit of a downer. Glad the batman sets are heading this way though

^ Just checked the list, and that's the one that's already on it ... (and no, I didnt just edit it ;o) )

Maybe The sun will do what they did last time or was it the time before that and extend the promotion by another week and say it is because of excellent reception or something similar?

By in United Kingdom,

oh... thanks a lot! now i have to get up really early and travel for ever to get like 200 of these each! really, I am telling the truth. but anyway 198 of those packets will be going on ebay!

Only really interested in the Batman Jetski, and maybe the microlight. Shame there's no Avengers as I prefer them to DC.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The Microlight is a very nice model - I picked up a few at Manchester Airport. Most of these are not exclusive, so don't pay over the odds... You can easily get them from airports and even WH Smith have then sometimes.

My local Tesco have some of the previous City polybags for sale from time to time including two boxes of the Tie fighter 8028 for 2.99 GBP each.
